Alcohol Free Family event

This iconic annual event has been raising money for local community charities for over 70 yrs. As well as a family day out, the picnic provides the opportunity for local and off island businesses to advertise and sell their products to both locals and visitors alike. The AFSG Charitable Trust has had the pleasure of organising this event since 1996. The Trust has been operating since 1988 and assists the community in a multitude of ways such as; providing home help for the elderly, new mothers and those recovering from illness; counseling services, Youth Group and School Holiday programmes, adult education workshops as well as maintaining a vehicle for community use.

This event is the most attended event of the Barrier Island year. It would not be possible without the help and support of local people and businesses, as well as those who have a connection to the Barrier via business, family, and friends or by being a regular visitor to the island.

This years winter storms have caused devastation across the island and once again the community has pulled together to help each other however, we have a very small population and are always in need of assistance to fundraise for organizations such as AFSG. As the most attended event of the Barrier year (over 1200 people), it’s the perfect venue to showcase your business and products or to raise awareness of conservation and alternative living.
